Another year, same story.  The Butler University Bulldogs claimed their sixth consecutive Horizon League Men's Tennis Championships on Sunday, while the University of Illinois at Chicago women captured their 11th consecutive title.

 

All-League honorees James Low, Evan West and Eric Breitenbach picked up two victories apiece as Butler defeated UIC 4-0 to win their ninth title in the last 10 years.  Low, the 2007 Horizon League Player of the Year, defeated Sebastian Lystad 6-3, 6-2 at No. 1 singles and earned a doubles victory over Lystad and Andy Lockhart with partner Ben Raynauld, while Breitenbach was victorious at the second singles and doubles spots, and West claimed wins at No. 3 singles and doubles.  With the win, Butler was awarded the League's automatic berth to the NCAA Men's Tennis Championship.
